These posts are sort of little pep talks for myself. I’m trying to focus on the positives and think about the cool things I can/will do with my kid. Some of them will be new activities for me, others will be old favorites. Many will have strong positive memories of time spent doing them with my dad, while a few might have caused us to yell at each other. Either way it’s all part of the journey.
I do feel like these pictures pretty much speak for themselves, although I probably should offer a little commentary. Namely, let me make it perfectly clear that my family was not part of a right-wing militia. Republicans yes, crazy backwoods types – no. Dressing up in camo and playing army was a big thing when I was a kid. Not sure if that is still the case. My kid will hopefully enjoy pretending to be a soldier.
